Have you ever wondered…
What are the benefits and dangers of rough-and-tumble play? What motivates rough-and-tumble play? What is the connection between rough-and-tumble play and aggression? What does rough-and-tumble play have to do with gender expectations? What types of children are drawn to rough-and-tumble play?
